Guess the Garden Visitor . . .
The other day, my husband spotted this little guy on our dwarf orange tree (our miniature garden). I have no idea how he saw it since its body color matched the leaves perfectly. Frans immediately called my daughter over, who immediately grabbed something to capture him in. Isn’t it cool? Surprisingly, my daughter was actually the one that identified it.
Can you guess what type of insect this is (without looking at the image tag)? I’ll give you a hint – it’s NOT a Leaf Bug . . . (UPDATE: Answer is below photo.)
It’s an Acanalonia Conica, aka Conehead Planthopper. You can recognize it by the reddish eyes!
